OneUp Components wanted a lightweight hub, an affordable hub, and a quality, reliable hub. Usually, you can pick two, but they’re delivering all three, and they come in seven colors.

The CNC’d alloy hub shells pack simple but proven tech inside, are rated for any type of bike, from XC to long-travel eMTBs. Here’s how they come together…

disassembled parts of oneup mtb hubs.

The hub shell is machined from 7075 alloy, and it’s easily user-serviceable with a mostly tool-free disassembly, save for bearings…you’ll need a press to replace those and pull the axle out (properly, anyway).

The inner drive ring nested into CNC’d grooves rather than being threaded in. They say this saves weight, allows wider bearing spacing, and makes it simpler to assemble and maintain.

Claimed weight is just 362g for the pair – 142g front and 220g rear (w/ XD freehub). This is lighter than most competing mainstream hubs on the market, at about half the price.

Key specs include:

  • 44-tooth ratchet ring
  • 8.2º engagement
  • Enduro ABEC 5 Bearings
  • Double-seal endcaps
  • 7 colors
  • J-Bend spokes
  • 6-bolt rotor mount
  • Boost spacing (110 F / 148 R)
  • 28 and 32 hole

The endcap’s seals have waterproof grease applied between them and the bearing’s seals, and each hubset comes with a packet of DumondeTech waterproof grease for topping it off.

Repairs should be easy, too. They use common J-Bend spokes, and the build specs are laser etched onto the hub shell for easy reference.

freehub body options for oneup mtb hubs.

They’re available with HG, XD/XD-R, and Micro Spline freehub bodies…

…in your choice of Black, Pewter, Green, Orange, Red, Purple, and Blue. MSRP is just $370 for the set, or $100 for the front and $220 for the rear plus $50 for your choice of FH body.

The freehub bodies look very much like a stock 350 freehub will fit.

It’s almost like OneUp likes and respects its customers.

…also, it’s ironic that the points of engagement oneupsmanship ends with OneUp.

I could never ride a bike with 44t engagement.

48t is the absolute minimum!

Seriously, these look superb, especially if reliability is on par with their posts.

Good for One Up for offering what looks to be a great product at a great value. Refreshing. I am curious about what they sound like. I’d guess that they are similar to DT Swiss given the mechanism.

These look great! Wish they’d release a Road/Gravel version!

Dang, I like the looks of these. Much appreciated detail providing the build specs right on the hub. I’ve used exclusively DT hubs for a long time, and these look very similar. I’d be keen to try a set…but I don’t own a boost spaced bike!!

They claim to make a no-nonsense hub, but their design of its hub is clearly inferior to that of a 350:

  • splines of the size of a DT ratchet manchined directly into the hub shell will lead to wear (especially for MTBs and eMTBs) -> the hub body becomes a wearing part -> 2 years of warranty is likely to be the lifetime you can expect from the hub shell
  • one spring instead of two has a significantly lower reliability
  • Enduro is better at marketing than making bearings -> DT uses way superior bearing suppliers like TPI

I would never put this hub on my bike.
